About colin mitchell

Hi! I am the owner and administrator of, a Mastodon instance devoted to hosting bots. A number of people have asked how they can support the server, so I've set up this Patreon to help cover the costs.

What Are The Expenses?
I'm spending about $40/month right now, which covers:
  • The main server on Digital Ocean
  • Assets being stored on Amazon S3
  • Daily database backups

My other costs are minimal right now -- the domain costs $11.99/year. (I've started a spreadsheet to track costs if you're interested in some details). I'm using free services to currently provide email, monitoring, and a few other things. I might need to upgrade the Digital Ocean server at some point, and the S3 costs expand a little every month, but I have some ideas for how to help with that.

If you would like to help out with costs, I very much appreciate it!

If you have any questions, please let me know! You can contact me on, or you can email me at colin at muffinlabs dot com.
